It is perhaps the 2010 Renault Laguna Estate that is easily overlooked in the mid-size wagon market. It is still fresh in the showrooms even after a year and a half. It is unfortunate that the sales have not come upto the expectation; in fact it is very slow. It is not because the model is not competent enough. Launched in Australia, this model added to it a new bodystyle which consisted of only a hatchback. It was in May 2009, that the range was boosted up with the availability of a 2.0 L turbocharged petrol engine which gave the buyers an alternative of the 2.0 dCi turbodiesel.

So far its appearance is concerned; both the interior as well as the exterior of the Laguna Estate looked stylish with bodywork which looks more harmonious than the high-rumped hatchback. It boosts a list of standard issue mod-cons and is also well equipped. There is plenty of safety equipment and it has performed well in crash testing. The wagon body is however, perfect for carrying a growing family.

As the entry level, this tester was equipped with electronic parking brake, a push button, power windows, climate control, heated wing mirrors, automatic headlights, fog lights, rain sensing wipers and 16 inch alloys. In the Expression model, the AM/FM four speaker along with a single disc CD player is the standard system.

Two engine options are available with a turbocharged petrol engine offering 125KW at 5000rpm and 270Nm torque at 3250 rpm while the diesel engine offers peak torque of 340Nm at 2000rpm and power of 110KW at 4000rpm. This model is firm and resistant to body roll and is great on glass smooth roads. Passengers are quite comfortable in it with adequate headroom and legroom. There is enough space at the back for three children to sit comfortably.

In the end it can be said that this model is a sound package with enough safety and excellent space for all. So far its mechanical package is concerned it is bit down but an average driver won’t have anything to complain in normal conditions.
